I had plenty of motionless, glassy-eyed binges on Fifa 11 last year. Very addictive, but it can't be healthy.
I'm going to cut down on my gaming this year.

I'm feeling this strange pull towards DC Universe Online, even though the pricing model makes no sense and I probably don't have enough time to play it to justify the cost even if it were reasonable.

It hasn't even reviewed that well.

But still the pull is there :?

This game hasn't left my PS3 once since I picked it up last year. I'm currently playing through my second season on the My Player mode. I used to be an NBA Live player, but now love this 2k series.

I also got the Back to the Future adventure game. Its pretty fun/old school.


I disagree, I thought cataclysm was terrible, PvP balance that is. Before quitting I was 2500 rated in 3s.

Lucky for me I never got into PvP. I don't like the frantic nature of it.. I have always liked the questing and Raiding. That seemed fun in cataclysm. Just dont have time anymore.

Anyone playing Marvel VS Capcom 3 on Xbox Live? My Gamertag is Vegan Prime if anyone wants to play.

Our household now has a Playstation 3 :D We got Skyrim with it, plus a game about jumping through portals.

Can any of you recommend any games you've enjoyed? We don't like driving or tennis games, but everything else goes.

That game about jumping through portals is probably technically the best game available for playstation. It's really two games as well, because the online cooperative section is completely different from the single player campaign.

Another fun game is Mirrors Edge. It's another first person puzzle type game but with parkour game mechanics. The time trial aspect is probably the most entertaining part.

We've got Mirror's Edge as well and are enjoying it. Also Mortal Kombat, which is a little dull but would be a good post-pub game. I'll look out for the others.

I'm really liking I Am Alive on Xbox live arcade. It's kinda Tomb Raider meets Fallout. I love a good post apocalyptic romp!

I've been wondering about that one. It got some average reviews but I like the look of it.

Mostly playing iPhone games at the moment: Transformers G1 Awakening, Project 83113, Cardinal Quest, WELDER, Street Fighter IV Volt. My iPhone Game Centre name is Vegan Tacos if anyone wants to play SF4 Volt.

Lego Batman 2: DC Superheros (Xbox 360) is on the way so I'll get into that soon.
